a pass on the fiscal cliff. home builders, gold stocks big gainers this week. defensive names, cyclical stocks are the biggest gainers on the week. dow is up 2%. we also see s&p 500 sector gainers. this is all the risk-on trade. materials, tech, energy, financials, there's your classic risk-on move and for the week the dow is up 2%. s&p up maybe 2.3% for the week. my sense is that this is going to last another week and a half to two weeks. you have a grace period where they'll let them negotiate. if we get into the week of december 10th, everyone feels we better get some outlines of what will happen. if there's not the obvious -- we're not going to have a deal, it is going to move down very fast. i think we have a period of a week and a half here. >> we'll be watching. thank you. >>> the announcement of the cease-fire. did that lead to selling in treasuries? rick santelli is tracking the selling at the s&p. >> definite talk on the floor has been almost universally about the cease-fire and a lot of thought as to why the market and treasuries didn't really respond much. you could look for
